    California is often touted as one of the world’s largest economies and I wonder where the other states rank. The first infographic visualizes states by their GSP and colors them by per capita income—bluer for less income and redder for greater. I found too much variation and fuzzy stats on workforce per state which would’ve been a more telling metric, as I know my own state, Utah, has the highest proportion of children, skewing that number down. Note Delaware, Wyoming, and Alaska with high per capita incomes based on the GSP, which suggests that people are pulling more weight there. As a follow up to the Gross State Product Map, a second graphic is for the European Union. Like the first, this notes the largest portions of the EU economy and the highest and lowest per capita incomes, but also notes the percentage of debts as well as the economies of the candidate and neighboring non-EU nations. Note, of course, the EU’s slightly larger economy to the United States, and Germany (unsurprisingly) as the largest portion of the economy, passing the UK and France and altogether comprising roughly half of the entire economy.
